R&B star Chris Brown's day in court to answer assault charges has been delayed again after travel issues prevented the singer from making it to Washington, D.C.
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was due to appear in court on Friday (29Aug14) for what would have been the third attempt to resolve an assault case dating back to October, 2013. But, according to court filings, Brown was unable to make it to the hearing and it was rescheduled for Tuesday (02Sep14).
The singer and his bodyguard were charged with beating up a young man outside a Washington, D.C. hotel. The minder, Christopher Hollosy, was convicted earlier this year (14), while Brown has rejected plea deals in relation to the case.
At the time of the incident, Brown was on probation in California for the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Chihuahua Honey went missing during a visit to a friend's house in Benedict Canyon, near Beverly Hills, California last weekend (23-24Aug14), just weeks after Holmes adopted her.
The worried Batman Begins star plastered posters around the neighbourhood alerting locals to the dog's disappearance and even offered up a $1,000 (£588) reward for the pet's safe return, but the search was called off on Wednesday (27Aug14) after officials at the Lucky Puppy Rescue organization located the pooch not far from where she disappeared.
Suri's furry friend was subsequently checked out by a vet and given the all-clear to return home, reports TMZ.com. Suri, eight, is Holmes' daughter from her marriage to Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise.

Singer/rapper Cee Lo Green has been handed three years of probation and a community service sentence after striking a plea deal relating to an ecstasy charge.
The Forget You hitmaker, real name Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, hit headlines last year (13) after an ex-girlfriend accused him of slipping her ecstasy before having sex with her following a dinner date in Los Angeles in 2012. He pleaded not guilty to the claim at the time of his booking, but subsequently agreed to plead no contest to a felony count of sharing ecstasy in a deal which allows him to maintain his innocence.
He entered the plea during a brief court hearing on Friday (29Aug14), when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Young ordered the star to serve probation.
The 39 year old must also complete 360 hours of community work at the MusiCares Foundation of the Recording Academy, which provides financial aid and medical care to musicians who have fallen on hard times. He must also attend 52 private alcohol counselling sessions, reports TMZ.com.
Prosecutors had previously dropped a charge of sexual assault against Green on the grounds of insufficient evidence. The plaintiff, whose identity has not been revealed, alleged Green spiked her drink during a date in November, 2012, and she later woke up naked in a bed with him in the room.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul caused mayhem as he prepared for his historic night at the Emmy Awards on Monday (25Aug14) by staging a Twitter scavenger hunt all over Los Angeles for fans of the show. The actor found keepsakes in a closet and decided to part with them by sharing them among savvy fans - but he had no idea so many people would be interested in his character's license plate, plants, props and scripts from the show.
He explains, "The first clue was: 'Go find R.J. Mitte, aka Walt, Jr., at the IHop (restaurant) in West Hollywood. He'll be eating breakfast and he'll have some signed scripts for you'.
"Literally within 60 seconds, the IHop is just bombarded with just crazy fans and causes so much traffic."
Fans were so keen to get their hands on Paul's random stuff from the show, some were caught cheating.
He explains, "These ladies were camped outside my house and I pulled out and... they kept following me. I walked directly up to their, I took a picture of them and said, 'Shame on you, shame on you! You cannot cheat! You don't win anything!'"
Paul showed off photos from the scavenger hunt during an appearance on chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday (28Aug14), and one featured himself on a park swing, dressed as his Breaking Bad character Jesse Pinkman.
He explained, "This is me in a West Hollywood park. I said, 'Tag, you're it,' on Twitter. 'The first person to tag me in the West Hollywood park (will win the suit I was wearing)'... and I signed it on the back, 'Ya b**ch, Aaron Paul'."
The actor made it extra difficult because when fans arrived at the park, he started running away from them.

British model Cara Delevingne wanted to eat an animal's heart when filming a dream sequence in her upcoming movie The Face Of An Angel.
In the drama, the catwalk beauty plays a student who teams up with a director and a journalist to make a film about a murder victim.
The story, starring Kate Beckinsale and Rush star Daniel Bruhl, is loosely based on the real-life death of Meredith Kercher in Italy in 2007, and includes a scene showing Delevingne's character eating a beating heart in a dream sequence. The model has now revealed she offered to chomp on the real thing but had to settle for a heart-shaped cake instead.
Delevingne tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "I wanted it to be a real heart, in the weirdest way... you know, a pig's heart... but instead it was made of icing and red sauce. Every time Daniel walked in, he kept laughing, which affected me - and everyone else." The drama will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada on 6 September (14) and will also be screened at the BFI London Film Festival in October (14).
Kercher's roommate, U.S. student Amanda Knox, and Knox's boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of the murder but were acquitted in 2011 after serving four years.
LMFAO star Redfoo is convinced a nightclub reveller who threw a glass at his head in an unprovoked attack was jealous because the pop star was surrounded by sexy girls.
The rapper, real name Stefan Gordy, received treatment at the scene for a cut to his head following the incident in Australia, but the injury did not require stitches. He had been attacked during a bash in a private area of the Golden Sheaf Hotel in Sydney, and Redfoo is convinced his assailant was envious because he was partying the night away with a group of beautiful women.
Speaking after the incident in the early hours of Wednesday (27Aug14), he says, "We were about to round up the party and take it home to the afterparty. All of a sudden out of nowhere a glass hits me in the head and I look over to see who might have thrown it and I see kind of a dodgy fella trying to flee the scene. "I looked down at my hand and there was blood all over my hand. There's blood on the dance floor... I was appalled. It was unbelievable to me that this would happen. I lost my mind. The whole side of my face was bloody. It was unbelievable, like I'd been hit in the head with an axe... "I can't help it if the girls are gyrating their hips towards me and taking selfies and giggling and laughing and it seems like he might have been upset with that and didn't like what he saw. The first thing I would say to him is 'Bro, I've got to understand why did you do it. I want him to just tell me the truth. If you are a man and jealous, just say it'."
However, Redfoo is adamant he still loves life in Australia, adding, "This isn't the Aussie way, I can guarantee that. This is the most loving country I've been to ever, and by no means am I letting this get to me. I have only positive feelings about Australia and the people."
A 21-year-old man is due in court on 24 September (14) charged with malicious wounding in connection with the incident.
Former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts sustained a black eye and swollen lip when she knocked herself out with an exercise ball this week (begs25Aug14).
The singer was working out with a weighted fitness ball in a gym and she suffered a painful injury when it struck her in the face. Roberts tells U.K. TV show Good Morning Britain, "It was like one of those YouTube videos you watch of people knocking themselves out in the gym. That was me! I picked up a medicine ball... chucked it at this trampoline and it came back with a vengeance. It just knocked me out. Black eye, swollen nose, swollen lip..."
However, Roberts had no time to dwell on her injuries because she was due to perform a skit with British presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly that evening as part of their touring comedy show.
She adds, "My manager's actually a boxer so he put a silver spoon in ice and rubbed it for about 3 hours before the show. I looked a little bit like I'd gotten some work done... Thank God for make-up and a good make-up artist. I wore my hair a bit in my face so nobody really knew... it was kind of rough to get through the next couple of shows but the show must go on."
The comedy tour concludes on 7 September (14) in Newcastle, England.
